The National

The National, whose album Trouble Will Find Me is due this week, may be this summer's Arcade Fire – a beloved indie-rock act graduating from theatres to arenas. (The band's sound is small enough to do a date at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, but large enough to headline Brooklyn's Barclays Center on a tour that runs through September.) It's hard to imagine this frequently gloomy band busting out its Springsteen-style anthems for arenas and sheds, but as The Cure once showed us, pain is universal.
